We recommend integrating Gear with a smart home hub that uses ZigBee. Most, if not all, smart home hubs need an integration to be developed. However, some may work with Gear out-of-the-box.

Will it lift?

 We've custom-engineered the hardware using only the strongest components to lift shades of any size, regardless of weight.


See for yourself.

Shade compatibility

Compatible with a variety of shades, blinds, curtains, and drapes regardless of their size or weight. Gear is made for your bedroom, living room, office, kitchen and more. 

Cord/Bead compatibility

Gear works with any shade with a beaded chain or cord loop. If you pull your shades with one hand, Gear will work as planned.


Do you have questions about compatibility?
